Frankenstein's Monsters (DVD)

Finally! Sanda Vs. Gaira is coming! DVD Drive-in has just announced that August Ragone has announced that Classic Media has announced that the TOHO kaiju film klassic War of the Gargantuas is coming to DVD on September 9th as a two-disc double feature set with Rodan! Both films will contain the original Japanese version w/subtitles plus the US versions dubbed into English. As an added bonus the set will include a 68 minute documentary called “Bringing Godzilla Down to Size.” Check DVD Drive-In for more specifics.

Thanks again to the great chain of announcers…
Anyone else notice the box art says “Gargantuans” with an 'N' at the end though?

Great news, I've been waiting for this one. I wonder if that's a typo on the cover or if Classic Media is making up their own new title for it? Well whatever they call it, I'm buying it!

Thanks Karswell!

Hope I can find this.... I kept waiting and waiting for "Frankenstien Conquers The World: to hit the stores and have never found it. Suppose I'll have to order it online. Probably this one too.

I've never seen either but am looking forward to it! If it's Toho, it's good enough for me.

Yeah Fred, Frankenstein Conquers the World (aka Frankenstein Vs. Baragon) has been out for about a year now, excellent film too. As much as I love Rodan though I wish they had paired Frankenstein Conquers with War of the Gargantuas, seems like a smarter double feature.

HAVENT SEEN GARGANTUAS IN YEARS. I'LL NEVER FORGET WATCHING IT LATE ONE NIGHT WHEN I WAS A KID, THE SCENE WHERE HE EATS THE LADY AND SPITS HER DRESS OUT TOTALLY BLEW MY MIND! STIL DOES ACTUALLY...

Scenes of someone being eaten in a monster movie always freaked me out as a kid.

The earliest memories I have of getting the willies from such a thing was when the Muppets, guest-starring on the Ed Sullivan Show, would routinely EAT each other! That was sick!

And I just totally showed my age there.

August Ragone was the editor of the magazine Markalite. Love the kaiju eiga and War of the Gargantuas is one of my favorte.
